May Old Hollywood grace your home! Celebrate the iconic Anna May Wong with our exclusive handmade ornament. Wong is wearing the stunning dragon motif dress designed by Travis Banton for the actress' role of Tu Tuan in the 1934 film "Limehouse Blues."
Appearing in over sixty movies throughout her career, Wong was the first Chinese American film star in Hollywood. She was also the first Chinese American actress to gain international recognition. And in 2022, she became the first Chinese American to be featured on the U.S. Quarter! Wong was a pioneer for Asian-American actors, and her varied career spanned silent film, sound film, television, stage, and radio.
"The harder the work the greater the satisfaction in accomplishing it" - Anna May Wong
